Silly question, but I can't move my steam friends list window, the top bar is somehow underneath the main bar of unity at the top.

In Windows you can right-click (or shift-click in Windows 7) and select to 'Move' when a window can be seen directly.

Something similar possible here?

Also, press and hold the super key for a list of handy shortcuts! – Noki Oct 27 '13 at 22:01

Try to press alt (keep it pressed) and then click with the mouse on the window and move it.

Also, try alt + spacebar, move (or m), and move it with the arrows.

Any result?
